Laura Bruce

Laura Bruce

South Island Newcomer of the Year 2020

Demonstrating the impeccable timing that has become her trademark, Laura wisely emigrated to New Zealand just a few months prior to the start of the pandemic.

A newcomer to stand-up, Laura draws inspiration from a career in corporate communications, her life as an expat in Northern Ireland and Scotland, and observations about the Kiwi way of life.

Having just emigrated to Wellington from Christchurch, she’s quickly become Karori’s favourite Canadian comedian. Just ask Sandy at the Karori Public Library.
